Anti-jeiwsh Agitation Spreads in Syria

Download PDF for this date

An anti-Jewish agitation with Palestine conditions as the background has been started by several Arab newspapers in Syria.

The newspapers carry on what seems to be an organized campaign for boycotting Jewish merchants in Syria as a measure of retaliation for the alleged “dispoiling of the Arabs in Palestine.” The Damascus newspaper. “El Sheab,” appeals to the Arab youth “to rise in defense of the Arab honor’ and to help “our despoiled brethren in Palestine.”
